Obituary Streaming New Track ‘A Lesson In Vengeance’ New US Dates with Gruesome Confirmed

Florida death metal legends, Obituary, have shared a new song from their impending, self-titled album, out next week, March 17th. “A Lesson In Vengeance” is available for streaming below.

Additionally, Obituary has announced new US headline tour dates with labelmates Gruesome, from May 11th – May 21st. The band kicks off the tour cycle with the 2017 Decibel Magazine Tour featuring Kreator, Horrendous and Midnight on March 17th in Charlotte, NC. A complete list of dates, including numerous festival appearances, are listed below.

Picking up where 2014’s Inked In Blood left off, Obituary show no signs of slowing down as they continue to reign as Kings of death metal. Recorded at their home studio in Tampa, FL, Obituary is a 10 track tour-de-force of bone-pulverizing death metal that is as heavy, uncompromising and infectious as anything they’ve released in their historic, nearly 30-year career.

Obituary is due out March 17th on CD/LP/digital. Physical and digital pre-orders are available now via Relapse at this location.

The album art was created by Andreas Marschall.

Obituary tracklisting:

“Sentence Day”
“A Lesson In Vengeance”
“End It Now”
“Kneel Before Me”
“It Lives”
“Turned To Stone”
“Straight To Hell”
“Ten Thousand Ways To Die”

“Sentence Day”:


“When writing records the song titles and album titles are always the last things on our minds,” said vocalist John Tardy. “We know that the songs themselves are the most important thing, so with this our 10th studio album and nearly three decades as a band, we thought it was the perfect time for a self-titled release. It always helps to have a killer album cover so we worked with Andreas Marschall, gave him our ideas and thoughts and asked him to break out the big guns to create an epic logo and he delivered like he always has for Obituary.”

The band further added: “We could not be any more excited about this new album. We had a blast writing and recording it and having Ken and Terry as part of the writing process was a very cool experience for all of us. We really took our time with the writing process of these new songs, recording riffs and ideas as we went along and recording them as rough mixes then listening back and making necessary changes to help mold them into the songs that we are extremely proud of.

“It’s always a challenge in the studio to get the song ideas out of your head onto the recording the way you want but we made sure we were comfortable with the songs and the sounds we were getting before we even hit the record button and it made it a great experience. It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 1/2 years since the release of inked in blood and we are so excited to get this new album into the hands of our fans. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it, hang on to your ass!!!!”
